The world’s wealth accumulation tendency clearly shows the great imbalance of social and economic life. This way a huge part of world’s population can’t afford such basic supplies like water, food, medical treatment, and sanitation.
Shocking facts speak themselves: more than 800 million (13% of the world’s population) go to bed hungry while 45,000 people die from starvation, 30% use less than $2 every day for a living and 20% survive as little as $1 per day. The same gap between poor and rich people appears for such essentials like education, water, housing, food. 500 billionaires in the world accumulated and own wealth equal to $1.9 trillion. This is more than the income of 170 countries combined.
